,000 refugees have already left syria this year. in an address to the u.n., egyptian president morsi criticized the regime of bashar al-assad, but warned against international intervention in syria. >> egypt is committed to pursuing the sincere effort it has been making to put an end to the tragedy in syria. a framework that preserves the unity of this brotherly state must involve all sections of the syrian people without discrimination based on race, religion, or sex. it would spare syria the danger of foreign military intervention, which we oppose, of course make up in his final appearance before the u.n. general assembly before his term expires in nine months, iranian president ahmadinejad gave a more subdued speech than in previous years, addressing the threat of an israeli military attack on iran, ahmadinejad referred to israel as uncivilized zionists. >> intimidation by nuclear weapons and weapons of mass destruction have become prevalent. testing generations of older model prebendary the less weaponry [indiscernible] is now being used as a new language of threats against nations [indisce

obama goes before the u.n. with a call for justice. but why isn't the united states any closer to getting it? >>> gop candidate mitt romney got another compliment from president clinton today. this time, though -- maybe not much help. >>> and it's been about 24 hours. and nfl fans are still outraged by a call made by a replacement ref in last night's packer-seahawks game. even scott walker pleads he wants the refs back. and hey, they're in a union! what will it take? let's go "outfront." ♪ >>> good evening, everyone, i'm erin burnett. "outfront" tonight, obama vows he'll get the killers. today the president spent 24 minutes of his half-hour speech to the united nations talking about libya, the middle east and ambassador chris stevens. the speech, which was seen by american voters and viewers around the world, mentioned stevens 12 times. as the president paid tribute to him right from the start. >> chris stevens loved his work. he took pride in the country he served, and he saw dignity in the people that he met. and two weeks ago, he traveled to benghazi to review plans to est
minutes on his schedule to deliver a quick speech at the u.n., however declined to meet with a single world leader while on the ground. that makes him the first president in more than two decades to avoid his counterparts on a u.n. trip. in addition, he uttered the word "terrorist" only once today. ironically the same amount of times that he tweeted about the ongoing nfl/referee labor dispute. it's statistics like these that show where the president's priorities lie. let's see, whoopi goldberg and joy behar, trumping benjamin netanyahu. if you needed more proof that this president is not interested in siding with our allies in israel, it came yesterday. this is the american delegation listening to mahmoud ahmadinejad delivering his remarks, the same remarks where he said that israel will be eliminated. our representatives were patiently listening to on monday. oh, by the way, we're learning from reports that iran is test-firing missiles, ones that are designed to hit warships. by the way, the iranians are bragging to the world that they've developed long-range drones capable of carryi
is at the u.n. this morning for us. richard, good morning. much anticipation about the president's speech today. >> good morning, soledad. yes, president obama, as you mentioned, is going to be speaking about iran and other hot spots in the middle east. certainly we've seen huge stories developing in the last two weeks, especially after the killing of ambassador stevens in libya. for the united states president, once again, there will behose tough remarks about iran, saying time is not limited. the u.s. president is going to be saying that there is just a time limit to diplomacy. the u.s. and many other nations extremely worried about iran's nuclear capability. iran's leader, mahmoud ahmadinejad, yesterday told the united nations in a speech about the rule of law that the security council members should be changed. they are allowing, in effect, israel to possess a nuclear weapon, while all the attention is focused on tehran. earlier in a meeting with reporters, he, in effect, again, questioned israel's legitimacy. this issue, of course, has been seen on the u.n. stage here for years. some
will be delivering two big speeches, one shortly after 10:00 at at the u.n. general assembly and the other two hours later when he followed mitt romney at the clinton global initiative meeting. he will have to respond to repeated criticism like from his republican rival. >> he said the developments of the middle east are bumps in the road. these are not bumps in the road. these are human lives. these are developments we do not want to see. this is time for the president who will shape events in the middle east, not just be merciful or be at mercy to events in the middle east. >> cnn political reporter peter hamby is live in washington. the president is facing a fierce foreign policy attack from romney right now. is this part of the romney campaign reboot we've been hearing a lot about? >> it absolutely is, zoraida. the bumps in the road quote from "60 minutes" have handed the romney campaign an opportunity to talk about something other than his tax returns or that fund-raising video where he yet sized 47% of americans. this has taken over the economy has the main thrust of the romney campaign messag
from the u.n. general assembly. to mark, a run and president and friday, leadership from libya. there will bring to the speeches and other throughout the week on c-span and online at c-span.org. and the eighth annual clinton global initiatives. president obama will address the group today beginning at 10:00 p.m. eastern. we will have his remarks live on c-span during earlier today, mitt romney addressed the group. and we will bring you those remarks later in our program scheduled. also find them on line in our video library act c-span.org. we will have the rally at the dayton airport. >> the first presidential debate between mitt romney and president obama is next wednesday, october 3. watch and engage with c-span. starting with our debate preview at 7:00 p.m. eastern. .nd post-debate - >> and now a debate in the virginia senate race. they say it is a tossup between tim kaine and george allen. they met in an hour-long debate moderated by david gregory. two more debates scheduled for october. >> good afternoon. welcome to the virginia senatorial debate between democrat tim kane,
peters is the author of a new book. president was a little tougher in his rhetoric in speaking to the u.n. but he did not go so far to call the terror attacks, he did defend free speech before the united nations and when speaking on "the view", he talked about how we are going to hunt down those who did this. he will do everything to make sure that our embassies are protected. what are your thoughts? >> well, it would've been nice if he could've seen that the embassies were protected before it our ambassador was murdered. but i am for anything taught that obama does. but he has to live up to the words. i was actually struck by things he did not say in his speech. first of all, on free speech, it's fine to stand up and talk about free speech and the importance of americans with that. but the administration will not let our intelligence community use the word islamist terrorists in reports. if you notice, he dances around it. when it came to iran, he said, again, we will do whatever it takes. but he could not back him he could not bring himself to add, including military force to stop the n
, the administration is very slow, even up to yesterday when the president's address to the u.n. general assembly slow to embrace this notion that it is in fact a terror attack, despite the fact -- you can't keep pointing to the film and protest when they show up with rpgs and mortars. >> that's the thing, eli, arguing against what my devil's advocate question was, they were publicly given a narrative. they were publicly linking this to that video as opposed to just saying we are investigating it. >> i think there are two different things going on right now. one is what happened in cairo? that clearly stemmed in part from a broadcaster who had jihadist sympathies talking about the internet video out in june. the second is what happened in libya. that has nothing to do, as i can tell, at this point, from the outrage over the video that started from a broadcaster in cairo. i think those two narratives kind of merged, at least in the telling of senior white house officials and other administration officials. >> bob, to you, what is the significance of this and i should point out, secretary clinton made t
, and sort of u.n." why isn't he meeting with anybody? >> i think it's a comment on the depth of his arrogance. i think this is a person that doesn't care what the world thinks, doesn't care what the american people thinks. if he gets re-elected, he'll be right and the rest of us will be wrong. i mean, his view is all about a cynical, calculated approach. "the view" gets him more votes than meeting with 10 or 15 world leaders. and the fact that he's not doing his job is irrelevant. you have to divide it into two parts. there's winning the office and there is actually being president. he's clearly said if i can win the office, i don't care what the rest of you think. let me say, what should really deeply bother americans is how does all this play out in the rest of the world? imagine you were an ambassador trying to explain to the president of egypt or the president of china or the president of germany, the chancellor of germany, you know, the president can't meet with you because there's no time in his schedule because he has to go do "the view." >> bill: as a matter of fact, his sch
past the hour. palestinians expected to campaign for expanded status at the u.n. today. but stopping short of seeking full statehood right now. israel's prime minister taking the podium just minutes later. >>> foreign affairs reporter elise labott is here with a preview. what can we expect from the president abbas and prime minister netanyahu? >> with juan was supportive of that in the security council and so he kind of had to go back. he was popular at home but in the international community you saw some resistance to that. this year i think he's going to campaign for this nonobserver's status, kind of like the vatican. i think he understands with the u.s. election right now he's not going to push for a full vote. >> the timing is everything. he doesn't want to try to take away from that? >> prime minister netanyahu, i this i, a lot of people are seeing this as his final warning on iran. he only has one goal in mind. iron is the single topic of the day. i think he's going to warn the world about iran's nuclear program. i think we've been talking this week about red lines that he doe
israel for the atrocities and they commit in the west bank, the u.s. vetoes that u.n. vote? and i would like to know, because i don't remember, or ever know -- the palestinians wanted -- what was it that the palestinians tried to gain a recently from the un, and the u.s. and israel vetoed it? it was -- and they wanted to further their status. ahmadinejad -- i have heard reports that he was misquoted on that statement were he said he wanted to wipe israel off the map, and what he was more trying to say was that zionism was going to fall of its own -- zionism was going to fall by its own coalition. host: got your point there did you can take any or all of them, mr. burns. guest: i will tell you, i've paid very close attention to what ahmadinejad has said since he took power in 2005, and he has said many times that israel should be wiped off the map of the world, and the supreme leader has said the same thing. they have it out for israel and and they want to see israel does appear, and is the obligation of the united states to protect israel and of course we will do that. china and russia

the truth on what happened. >> greta: so u.n. ambassador rice resign? earlier former secretary of defense donald rumsfeld went on the secretary. mr. secretary, nice to see you, sir. >> thank you. good to be with you. >> greta: there are many calls for ambassador to the u.n., susan rice, to resign. she has the backup of the secretary of state and the president, but there are calls for her to resign after going on all the talk shows and pushing this youtube video as the reason, the cause. your thoughts, sir? >> well, that's really up to the president and ambassador as far as i'm concerned. i think that the president can nominate who he wants, and the senate confirmed her. and she's the ambassador while she's there. i watched the presentation. and i thought it was amazing that someone in her position would go on with that degree of certainty, that fast, and that authoritiatively and be that wrong. >> greta: do you think she was perhaps hung out to dry? i thought it was unusual that the ambassador of the u.n. would make that appearance after that event? i would have expected some other member
to the u.n. take center stage in syria today. the lessons of rwanda have it offered in perfect guidebook for susan rice, helped to rally support for action in libya where the u.s. helped topple regimes and threatened to commit large-scale killing. she went the other direction at area with president upon the persistent calls for intervention there is thousands die in the fight against the government of president bashar al-assad. >> guest: one comments an election year for president said they would not be genetic action until a new administration comes in, either romney or barack obama in the second term. secondly, the administration has been certainly cautious about a sort of intervention, military intervention in syria. libya and syria are apples and oranges that they are quite different. libya was isolated regionally and internationally in a way that syria is not. it has the support of her rant, support russia as well as other countries that complicate the regional level and international level. finally, there've been calls to record the safe havens. i'm not a military expert, but every
netanyahu is preparing to address the u.n. assembly a short time from now. he is expected to make his case against iran. netanyahu remarks come as speculation grows in the jewish state whether sanctions against iran are working fast enough to change iran's nuclear path. listen to secretary of state hillary clinton and what she said back in july. >> we know the sanctions are biting. united states and israel agree on that. and we talked about concrete steps we can take to continue to build the pressure. jenna: this has been the opinion of the obama administration and it continues to beat the drum that sanctions are working, that they are creating a change inside iran. is that correct? we have the executive director of the foundation for defense of democracies. mark, nice to have you back on the program. >> thanks for for having me, jenna. jenna: mark you're finishing up a study i can looking at time lines, time lines for the nuclear program for inside iran and time lines when these sanctions are really, really going to affect change inside the country. what did you find? >> well, jenna, what

, the united states or the u.n. will deploy troops to help train the militias? and will this become like where iraq had a standing army we could help train in a short amount of time, where will we have to start over? >> we have one more here and that will be the last question. >> my question piggyback on that last one. peter, you had mentioned a systemic endemic problem and that the policy needs to move toward a grass-roots approach and something that addresses the social views and everything else. what can a policy of the united states take on to help with those institutions that this grassroots and build into that to help the problem? to the original order. >> i do not know about the hospital. i have heard one of the sanction militias has stepped in, or perhaps the national army. but i do not know. the national army training, and this is an issue that is dear to my heart. i served in libya before the revolution in 2009 and before it in 2011. the u.s. is actively aware of the need to get this army back on its feet in such a way that is respect for relations. it is treading very carefully beca
." good evening. the most powerful man and woman in the world are gathered in new york tonight at the u.n. and across town at the clinton global initiative. president obama spoke at cgi today. we'll get to that in a moment. he had tough talk on iran's nuclear program. >> let me be clear. america wants to resolve this through diplomacy and we believe that there is still time and space to do so. but that time is not unlimited. >> with just 42 days to go until the election, mitt romney blasted iran in his speech to the cgi. >> a voice of unspeakable evil and hatred has spoken out, threatening israel and the entire civilized world. >> all of this on the heels of my extraordinary hour with iranian president, mahmoud ahmadinejad. tonight my special guest is former president bill clinton. since leaving the white house he's focusedis considerable political muscle on the mission of the clinton global initiative and now he speaks his mind on a world on the brink and the race for the white house. mr. president, thank you very much for sparing the time to talk to me. you're in the eighth year now of
president -- host: reaction from "the new york times," president obama at the u.n.. they write that there were two fairly large omissions in his address to the general assembly. the israeli-palestinian conflict and the syrian civil war, as well as the afghanistan situation and iraq. host: they do point out at the beginning of the editorial that there is a defense of free speech and condonation of anti- american violence. brad, brunswick, ohio. welcome. caller: the comments that obama was making about foreign-policy and the middle east, i understand what he was saying, but i have a simple question. we might have wars overseas and i am a republican. i have always been a republican. i believe in mitt romney. the only thing that made me question this over the years, in america, the indians, no one ever fights to get their land back for them. i am not allowed to say anything about anyone that i know. they asked me not to make a comment about anyone back here. i just want to say that there is a very important person on the reservation named read the other. you never see him at the u.
drew a red line for iran's nuclear program today as he addressed the u.n. general assembly. see him there? he paused for effect. now, look at that rather crudely drawn bomb. colin powell moment. there was a purposefully simple diagram, kind of like a cartoon, designed to make what benjamin netanyahu believes is a very serious, but simple point. >> by next spring at most, by next summer, at current enrichment rates, they will be finished with medium enrichment and move on to the final stage. from there, it's only a few months, possibly a few weeks, before they get enough enriched uranium for the fist bomb. >> but in his speech this week, president obama did not give any such timeline. he certainly didn't draw a red line. >> so let me be clear, america warrants to revolve this issue through diplomacy and we believe there is still time and space to do so. but that time is not unlimited. >> netanyahu thanked the president for tough sanctions, but was clear to say those sanctions have not impacted the country's nuclear program, but did he give a veiled comparison between obama and the br
